About CSS

Welcome to Chapman Suzuki Strings! My name is Erin Chapman, and I am a Suzuki violin instructor in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

The aim of the Chapman Suzuki Strings studio is to: “Create talented learners, beautiful hearts and minds, and excellent musicians.” CSS helps students learn to play the violin at a high level. By learning not only what to practice, but how to practice effectively, students can grow to express themselves in a technically confident, musical way. CSS is also dedicated to helping parents develop powerful and nurturing relationships with their children. We focus on using all these tools to broaden our understanding of the world, and the positive effect our musical skills can produce.

Students become proficient in violin technique and musicianship by experiencing weekly private lessons, bi-monthly group class, performance practice and service opportunities in the community. Daily practice and listening build the foundation for success in these experiences. Students and parents also have the opportunity to participate in various studio programs that challenge them to develop their talent of learning and to expand their knowledge of the music world. 

If you are looking for an opportunity that allows your child to develop musical skills and expression with effective and confident technique, and develop positive relationships with others, violin lessons with Chapman Suzuki Strings can help you do this!
